Grab Your Broom!

I made this little Halloween card last year using a card kit from Rock, Paper, Scissors in Redding, CA.  The card retains the flavor of the originally designed card, but I tweaked the layout spacing and the mat layer sizing a bit, added color to the witch's boot with Copics, added the glimmer brads, composed a verse, and decorated the inside of the card to compliment the card front.  I just love this Stampin' Up stamp and thought it was perfect for my daughter Jackie to place in her holiday shadow box picture frames.

Recipe:  Bazzill cardstocks: Blackbird, Yam, Clay.  Bazzill Dot.  Pattern paper: Authentique Enchanted.  Stamps: SU Bootiful Occasions.  Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black. Colorbox Charcoal (distressing). Stampin' Up Glimmer Brads.  Spellbinders dies: Classic Ovals/ Scalloped Ovals. EK Large Scallop Corner Punch (inside). Copic Markers. Computer-made verse; Font: Homemade Apple/ size 11.  Card size: 5-1/2" square.

    A tad late for a comment, however I wanted to THANK YOU for your lovely card here which I found in the SCS gallery - I desperately needed some inspiration! You card just made my day! It's so perfect I cannot wait to CASE this as closely as possible with the supplies I have. Thank you again for sharing..Ohhhh, I just LOVE the inside of your card too...now to figure out the font you used. : )

    1. Thank you Barb for your lovely comment. The font I used on the inside verse was Homemade Apple/ size 11. I composed the verse in Microsoft Word. I was trying to match the "Booty" from the stamp set as closely as possible.


Thank you for visiting my blog. If you leave a comment, it is much appreciated! Have a GREAT day! Carlene (aka Chatterbox)
